For Hope, is an organization created by artist Jeremy Bortz.
witnessing his sister-in-law’s courageous battle with breast cancer,
Jeremy decided he needed to do something to help support patients
suffering from the disease. Using his artistic abilities, Jeremy began
making flower tile paintings to put in Hospital waiting rooms and to raise
money for various illnesses. His belief is that by surrounding patients
with colourful flower tiles that form ‘gardens’ on selected wall
space, they will find the hope and determination needed to fight and
overcome their illness. The purpose of the Flowers for Hope paintings is
to bring cheer to hospital rooms while honouring and remembering a family
member or friend who has struggled with an illness.
Roosevelt once said that, “the future belongs to those who believe in
the beauty of their dreams”. Not only does artist Jeremy Bortz believe
in the beauty of his dreams, but he has made them a reality.
